Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Heterocyclic chemistry is a vast and important subject. Many different heterocyclic systems have now been explored. In the last century, a family of the structures at the borderline between organic and inorganic chemistry, which are characterized by an unusually high ratio of heteroatoms (sulfur and nitrogen) to carbon, was discovered. It turned out that these structures can be of practical interest as semiconductors, liquid crystals, and agrochemical, antimicrobial, antivirus, and similar objects. This Special Issue will focus on the advances in the synthesis, reactivity, and uses of polysulfur- and sulfur-nitrogen heterocycles.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

Natural Compounds and Their Structural Analogs in Regio- and Stereoselective Synthesis of New Families of Water-Soluble 2H,3H-[1,3]thia- and -Selenazolo[3,2-a]pyridin-4-ium Heterocycles by Annulation Reactions
Molecules 2020, 25(2), 376; https://doi.org/10.3390/molecules25020376 - 16 Jan 2020
Abstract
It has been found that both eugenol and isoeugenol derivatives reacted with 2-pyridinesulfenyl and 2-pyridineselenenyl halides in a regioselective mode affording products with opposite regiochemistry. Synthesis of new families of 2H,3H-[1,3]thia- and -selenazolo[3,2-a]pyridin-4-ium heterocycles has been developed [...] Read more.
It has been found that both eugenol and isoeugenol derivatives reacted with 2-pyridinesulfenyl and 2-pyridineselenenyl halides in a regioselective mode affording products with opposite regiochemistry. Synthesis of new families of 2H,3H-[1,3]thia- and -selenazolo[3,2-a]pyridin-4-ium heterocycles has been developed by annulation reactions of 2-pyridinechalcogenyl halides with natural compounds (eugenol, isoeugenol, methyl eugenol, methyl isoeugenol, acetyl eugenol, trans-anethole) and their structural analogs. The influence of the substrate structure and the nature of halogen on the product yields are studied. The 2-pyridinesulfenyl and 2-pyridineselenenyl chlorides are more efficient reagents compared to corresponding bromides. The obtained condensed heterocycles are novel water-soluble functionalized compounds with promising biological activity. Full article
